Can a computer sub woofer be used with a stereo setup ???

I've asked this question about ten times and have yet to find anyone who knows the answer.
I have a Boston digital BA735 Speaker that came with a Gateway computer that has been trashed. I want to use it with my Yanaha rx-v461 5.1 amp. Do any of the supposedly 13 million experts on FIXYA have an answer?

I wouldn't see why not. If the receiver has a sub output, there shouldn't be a problem. If it doesn't you should be able to use the tape out jacks for input to the sub.

Do i have to have the sub-woofer in order for my logitech X-230 speakers to work with my computer?


Certainly any large speaker itself cant be used with
very weak computer out signal
The signal should have power amplification in addition to
voltage amplification to energise large speakers

Ihave hk395 subwoofer..but i dont have the satellite and a two speakers..it is possible to use it...if not were i can buy..


U can use the sub-woofer by plugging it separately with a normal 2 stereo speakers.. or ..use 2 speakers attached on it ..be sure they are powerfull enough to make a match ..(usually it is enough 10 watt )
to plug t separately ..just take a look in the speaker configuration option of the driver..and change it in such a way that will allow you multiple out ..(you will see which one will be what ...even on a normal sound card with only 3 plugs ..The configuration you have to choose is probably 3=1 or so ...and will leave your pink for a microphone ..and the line in will turn in a out-let for the woofer ..
Or if the woofer have inlets for the speakers and has a amplifier built in ..you can attach any speakers..
In this case you can use teh normal speaker out ..and get the signal for the other speakers from the woofer ..
In case they were separate ..and the woofer was only connected with the central ..use like I say ..a configuration on the sound manager (speaker configuration ) in such a way that you will be able to connect the speakers in normal green out and use regular 2 stereo ones..and attach the sub-woofer in the plug specified in the diagram ..usually for 3=1 or 4=1 it will change the blue line in into woofer out ..and will work
In this case the speakers used in the green out have to be amplified separately (or have a built in amplifier like computer speakers have ).please ask if you didn't understood the procedure ..and please rate my answer

I need a wiring diagram from car stereo to 2 x 6 " x 9 " and a sub woofer please


You can connect the two 6x9 speakers to the two individual left and right outputs of the car stereo.
Connect each of the left and right channel with the correct polarity . Now the Sub-woofer requires an amplifier to be connected separately and so you need to use the car stereo to be linked to a sub woofer amp which powers the sub woofer.

Some weeks ago the sub stopped working. Thought dog had chewed the coaxial driver cable, but not shorted (now). Tried another sub w/o success.


Hi, I went to the Denon website and they have no documentation there for your receiver.
But do not frown, I have some good suggestions for you.
0 Don't beat the dog. After all, it's their job to chew things.
1 Get a new, un-chewed cable and see what happens between the sub output and the sub woofer. If it works, your in business. If it does not work. Don't be discouraged . Go to step #2
2 If the sub output on the Denon has failed, and everything else is good. There is another way to use your sub.
Install a patch system using the Headphone output from the front of the Denon. It may seem odd, but it works exceptionally well for the following reasons. It works on all signal sources. So if you are not playing a home theater source, you still have the use of your sub.
You will need the following adapters.
1 A Male stereo phone jack to female mini-phone jack. (Something that would accept typical small headphone sets such as those on an iphone).
2 A stereo "Y" connector that that has a single stereo male mini-phone jack that has two "RCA" female jacks.
3 A simple RCA male to male stereo cable pair as is commonly used to connect CD players, etc. i.e. separate red and white RCA connectors at both ends.
1 and 2 above may be available as a single unit combined with each other.
Take these adapters and connect the Item 1 into the Receiver, Item 2 plugged into Item 1, Item 3 plugged into Item 2 and finally the other end of Item 3 plugged into the two female RCA jacks mounted onto the back of the sub-woofer. If the sub only has one female RCA connector, get a RCA "Y" connector that has a single male end to 2 female ends.
This setup will work perfectly with any sub. The reason is as follows. Most decent subs have an adjustable high frequency cut off. So you can vary it from about 20Hz up to about 140 Hz.
I recommend that it is cut off at 80 hz. This way the bass transition is usually seamless between the woofer and the rest of the system. .
Then adjust the woofer volume control in a similar manner.
If it all works out, give the dog a treat and enjoy yourself.
I really hope this helps, I love my sub woofer as well.
Let me know how this turns out.
If you have any questions please post them on the site and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Best Regards,
Mark

How to hookup


hi,
if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.

if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above
ok

I get no sound out of my sub woofer. I've triple checked the setup for speakers. I've had this unit for years so I'm familiar with the setup. I've taken the speaker to another stereo and it works fine....


check the cable for you sub woofer. If problem exists. Try another cable to verify. What kind of subwoofers are you using? Are you going through the LFE port or are you running speaker wires through the speaker inputs on the sub?

Sr7200 LFE (sub woofer) output stopped working


Chances are if The Receiver only has sound in Stereo Direct Mode and all surround modes and Sub out are Inop the DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Card is most likey defective. These boards are not available from marantz (D&M Holdings) and must be Component level repaired which usually is not cheap. If Only the Sub out is not working check setup to be sure sub woofer is set for on. Also If On Screen setup menu does not appear on video monitor Unit may need to be Reset manually which entails discharging a Capaitor on main P.C.B Contact kstahl65@att.net for details
